Even though no one ever wants to leave the beach when on a beach vacation, it's still nice to have a pool at your rental home for days when swimming conditions are less than ideal or for an evening filled with night swimming and merriment. So for those of you who don't have a vacation rental home filled with memories that you revisit every year, or are new to the Hatteras Island rental market, we've made a list of homes with our time-tested, favorite pools!
Top Rated Pools on Hatteras Island
1. Hatteras Dream
New to the program for 2018, Hatteras Dream is just that: a dream! Fitting in with the rest of the house, the pool area is as luxurious as the interior of the home. This Salvo vacation rental boasts a 15 x 30' in-ground pool with available pool heat. It features a spacious kiddie pool offset by a lavish hot tub, covered seating and dual gas grills for alfresco dining.
2. Surfside Retreat
This gorgeous home located on the Buxton oceanfront, Surfside Retreat features a swanky private pool with optional pool heat available. Not just limited to the experienced swimmer, there is an additional kiddie pool and wet deck! The shaded lounge area is completed by a granite-topped tiki bar fit for an island-style happy hour...day...week...month??? Complete the whole experience with a soothing spell in the extravagant hot tub just off of the pool.
3. Cape Point Retreat
A twin to Surfside Retreat, Cape Point Retreat is located next door on the Buxton Oceanfront, just a short stroll away from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and mere steps away from the Atlantic Ocean. Also beautifully landscaped, this private, optionally heated pool is flanked with dual outdoor showers, a spacious shaded lounge area with a tiki bar and a cabana half bath. After a rejuvenating swim, hop out of the pool and unwind in the heated depths of the hot tub.
4. Davis Dunes II
Davis Dunes II is a lovely 6 bedroom, 6.2 bath on the oceanfront of Hatteras Village. Head out back and lap around the spacious and private heated pool surrounded by intricate inset pavers.

Wind down with a lengthy sit in the hot tub and enjoy your stay at Davis Dunes II!

One perk of this luxurious Rodanthe oceanfront home is the posh private heated pool, with free solar heat! This fun and generously sized pool is nestled right over the shore with a gleaming view of the crystal blue ocean.

Colorful lounge chairs exude island vibes while you rest in the sun and relax til your heart's content. Loosen up in the hot tub and take full advantage of all of the perks available at Ocean's Eleven!
6. Corona Del Mar
This fun Frisco home is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the ocean's edge near the old site of the Frisco Pier. Don't miss out on their 14 x 28' private pool just off of the Frisco duneline. Completing the experience is a secluded hot tub perfect for a nice soak while sipping on a delightful cocktail made at the poolside tiki bar. More than just an outdoor bar, this little gem is finished with lights, full electricity and a ceiling fan for humid days.
